OUT OF THE SHADOWS: Violent Conflict and the Real Economy of Mindanao

01 June 2016 Books / Conflict Alert

Informal and unregulated economic activities remain an important feature of Mindanao's economy and are explored in this book that won the 36th National Book Awards for Social Science. This study, which represents the first attempt to incorporate the informal economy into the broader analysis of the region, argues that one cannot comprehend Mindanao's political and economic challenges, let alone address them, unless these shadow economies are scrutinized further.
